Ryan Williams knows it's early in his recruitment. He knows his mind could change in the coming year. Just a junior at Missouri's Lee's Summit West High School, he'll have plenty of time to explore options before signing day 2015.
That doesn't mean the running back without an early preference.
"I want to stay in the SEC," Williams said. "So I'm looking for more offers from the SEC."
The only SEC school to make things official with the three-star prospect so far is Missouri, the in-state program. Northern Illinois, Northern Iowa and Toledo have also extended scholarship offers. His list of options will certainly grow in time.
For now, though, Williams is think unofficial visits. He has no dates in mind, but he does have plans.
"I might wait until the spring and then go check out Toledo, Nebraska and Arkansas," Williams said. "I don't have dates planned, but I want to visit all of those because they are all recruiting me pretty hard."
Williams says that Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State have also been in recent contact, but the seriousness of those situations varies. Williams visited Mizzou, Arkansas and Nebraska and says he intends to return to each this offseason.
Still, his visit list, like his recruitment as a whole, is subject to change. Williams sees no need to set anything in stone at the time being.
"I'm going to wait until the spring to start visiting places again because I want to see if I get any more big offers," he said.
